The Class of 2017 are an exceptional group of young men who will leave Marcellin College with an understanding of the Marist characteristics, value the traditions of their school, and have the skills and an attitude to succeed as global citizens. At Marcellin College, we have encouraged our young men to embrace all spiritual, academic, physical, cultural and social opportunities with a determination to strive for the highest with virtue and courage.

To celebrate and acknowledge the contribution the Class of 2017 have made to our community, there are a number of significant events occurring during the first four weeks of Term 4.  Boys will have the opportunity to be farewelled by their Pastoral Group, House, College and finally, formal acknowledgement from the Marcellin community at the prestigious Valedictory Mass and Dinner on October 27.

The following are the arrangements for the Year 12's for their final three weeks:
